BIOMASS AND BIOFUELS
familar steps in the traditional petroleum refinery
where is the existing biorefineries in Europe = Denmark.
bioconversion = biotransformation
the use of microorganisms or enzymes
for the conversion of chemical compounds, biomass, and organic waste = ORGANIC PRECURSORS
green chemistry vs. chemical biotechnology
green = less waste, less energy use.
relates to density of cells
with 3 main properties
CO2 capture and storage =
Sustainable alternatives to chemical industry
Example for some commercial products
the most common enzymes used
requirement of co-substrates?
isolated enzymes vs. whole-cell systems
in organic or inorganic solvents
the distinguishment of enzymes for 2 different 3-D molecular structures of the same molecule (rule of organic chemistry).
